Remote Hackathon with Yonder

Syscon recently had the opportunity to participate in a remote hackathon with the team at Yonder. With COVID-19 restrictions preventing us from travel, this innovative remote format proved to be an interesting and productive way to collaborate when compared to the traditional, hackathon style.

COVID-19 Protocol Module Now Available

Syscon is aware of the strain put on your agency as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. To help you ensure the safety of your staff and offender populations we have developed a COVID-19 Protocol module for distribution to all clients.

As a gesture of gratitude for your continued service to our communities, we are providing it free to all agencies using Syscon software. This module is compatible with all software versions and leverages existing functionality in our system to enable rapid deployment.

Functionality includes:

  • COVID-19 Assessment Questionnaires
  • Care In Placement (special housing assignment) for Medical Quarantine
  • Timed Observations for Individuals with COVID-19 (configurable)

If you are interested in learning more, please download our brochure. You can also schedule a Webex meeting with our team to review the functionality by contacting us at info@syscon.net.

COVID-19 Update

In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, the Syscon team would like to assure our clients that there will be no impacts to our current service levels. As a global organization, we’re well-versed in working with our clients and partners remotely, so as we practice social distancing by working from our home offices, we’re experiencing minimal impacts to our typical work processes. As always, should you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your Syscon point of contact, or contact us at info@syscon.net.

Thank you to all our clients and all other public safety officials that continue to support our communities during this time of crisis. Stay safe and take care.
